Members of the Heartland Men's Chorus wait in the basement of the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts before the performance of their show "And Justice for All" on Wednesday. The chorus' mission strives to build community, working together toward a common goal of civil rights activism. For many of the members, the group is like an extended family with strong camaraderie.
